So one of my final Christmas gifts that I completed was this robe for my Dad. I used the free McCall’s Pattern M4244 that I got awhile back and some Texas A&M style fleece for the fabric. Now, the robe patterns doesn’t list fleece as one of the options for fabric so there were certain modifications I had to make. For one, you can’t iron fleece, it melts. I ended up pinning and basting when the pattern called for me to iron a sem or iron something flat. It worked out pretty well. I was very happy with how it turned out – I thought it was a masculine robe and it went very smoothly for my first time working with a standard pattern (not a Sew Everything Workshop or Amy Butler pattern). As you can see, he was pretty stoked about the robe:
And Malachi even got in on the Christmas action – he got a kitty pirate ship:
‘Aaaargh’, he says:
There are a bunch more photos of our Christmas fun on Flickr. 🙂 Hope everyone had an enjoyable Christmas as well!
